'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' First Look: Meet the FoodimalsEric Walkuski |
'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,' the highly-anticipated sequel to 2009's surprise hit doesn't come out until the fall, but thankfully we have a first look at the animated pic right now: a lovely new image that shows off the movie's bevy of "food-imals," which are just what they sound like! Shrimpanzees anyone?
As you'll see in some of the close-ups below, 'Cloudy 2' features an assortment of tasty-looking creatures, including Bananostrichs, Watermelonphants, and Hippotatomuses. These oddities have been created by Flint Lockwood's (Bill Hader) food machine, prompting Flint and his friends to once again attempt to save the world from rogue eats. The story is an original one, not based on author Judi Barrett's sequel to her children's book, "Pickles to Pittsburgh".
The original film's directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, only serve as executive producers this time (they're working on 'Lego: The Piece of Resistance' currently), but most of the cast is back, including Hader, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, Neil Patrick Harris, Benjamin Bratt and James Caan. They're joined by newcomers Terry Crews and Kristen Schaal.
'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' comes out on September 27th.
